It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today we’re talking about some beautifully illustrated books – that also includes chapter dividers, end pages, drop caps, etc.! I’m traveling atm, so I won’t be able to take pictures of these things in my books. You’ll just have to trust me when I tell you everything is gorgeous!
Okay, so the thing is I didn’t really love the story overall – or rather how it was written. But Cursed comes with some drawings made by Frank Miller (yes, *the* Frank Miller) which is awesome. He has a very unique and distinctive style, so the drawings dispersed throughout the book were the first things I thought of when reading this week’s theme.
The copy of this book that I own comes with dividers for parts that are printed to look like marble. I still haven’t read it (shame on me, I knoooow) but I’ve flicked through it and I love this little detail. It just goes so perfectly with the story!
This one comes with gorgeous end pages! It’s been a while since I’ve read this, but from what I recall the end pages depict a city and the artwork is simply stunning.
#4 Wheel of Time
Every book in this series that I’ve read so far has chapter dividers that essentially depict the eponymous wheel. Apart from the fact that the wheel itself looks really intricate, I appreciate it when people put so much thought into the design and make connections like that.
#5 Forest of Souls
Forest of Souls has chapter dividers that look like a little forest! Seriously, how cool is that?! And how pretty?!
It’s the same small full circle moment you get with Wheel of Time and I’m here for it!
